If you tried Apple Music a few years ago, you might have quickly switched back to Spotify. Apple's option felt bare and wasn't very good. But Apple Music, which costs $9.99 per month, has improved a lot, with better ways to discover and share new music. There are a few neat tricks hidden away, too.
Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal said Apple Music has more paying subscribers than ever, and reportedly passed Spotify in the U.S. with 28 million paid subscribers to Spotify's 26 million in the U.S.
Since it comes pre-installed on iPhones, iPads and Macs, it's an enticing service to people who own Apple products. It's also available on Android if you prefer. Plus, Verizon has been offering a free subscription to new subscribers, which has likely increased its base.

You can see what your friends are listening to and even subscribe to their playlists, so long as they're using Apple Music and have made those playlists public.

You can search for songs by typing in lyrics that are used in the song. This is useful if you have something stuck in your head and no idea who sang the song but still want to listen to it. Just do this:
I love this feature and use it often. My favorite is to play anything from "Chill" to unwind after work, but there are playlists for all sorts of moods or activities including party, fitness, motivation, romance, blue, sleep and more.
To find music by mood, do this:
If you own an Apple TV or a HomePod, you can broadcast the song you're listening to right to one of those. To do this:
